Lighting up at last
little stone still has no shadow
gone again far too long
nothing will move that is all

Cracking through the still
till the rest moves into leaving
singular movement must
come to the fore once again

Mind the bend it’s stirring through the valley
standing for that which focalizes motion
tapping the sheets to check the grain

Presentness will give
only when a movement happens
time resists nothing less
than a refusing grip

Water soaks the ground
from below diverting dryness
going on much too long
weaving into a flaw

Mind the bend it’s whirring through the reels
little doubt it will form another pattern
tapping the sheets to check the grain


from The Tubular West, track released January 31, 2013
